About Vic


For three years, Pastor Vic has faithfully and joyfully served the GIAL community. Counseling students and staff, planning the chapel schedule, and fellowshipping with those who come along his path, he equally enjoys each of his responsibilities as Chaplain. Full of love and joy, Pastor Vic clearly displays his passion for God and His kingdom through his service at GIAL.

Before arriving at GIAL, Pastor Vic worked in a variety of capacities. After college, he played football for the Houston Oilers and for the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. He then returned to Texas to work for Republic Bank. During his time there, Pastor Vic also helped plant These Are They Church, where he served as Assistant Pastor. Additionally, he began his own moving company, D-Best Movers, which became yet another ministry God used mightily. Following his service with These Are They Church, Pastor Vic joined Dallas First Church and became the first African American pastor of the Nazarene denomination. Five years later, he planted yet another church, Building the Kingdom Community Church, where he continues to pastor today. While filling this role, Pastor Vic took opportunities to speak in chapel at GIAL and eventually accepted a position as Chaplain, adding this ministry to the others in which he was already involved. Clearly, God has worked powerfully through Pastor Vic and continues to bless others through his service.  Visit our Chaplain’s Corner page for more information about the ministry of the GIAL Chaplain’s office.
